Dicky Sledgehammer

Creator: Matt Dean
Age rating: 13 and older
A clueless private investigator bumbles his way through simple cases putting everyone he meets at risk. Unwilling to deal with reality, Dicky has created a "noir world" in his mind where he's the world's greatest detective. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Synopsis: “To me, there are no small crimes. Only small minded investigators trying to compensate for an even smaller set of balls.” – Dicky Sledgehammer.

In his mind, he's in a battle with the criminal underworld of Los Angeles. In reality, he’s the worlds worst detective but not for lack of trying. He means well and he’s trying to live up to the reputation of his famous uncle, but he just wasn’t given the brains god gives a turnip. A damsel in distress is the perfect opportunity to prove he’s a great detective but instead it sends him on a wild goose chase that only causes more problems for everyone involved. He just doesn’t have a clue.

Dicky Sledgehammer is a multi award winning short film created as a proof of concept for a 30 minute action comedy series. Our hope (with your help) is to prove to Amazon that enough people are interested in this project to turn it into a full series. We had a successful run in the film festival circuit and would love to give people something fun and silly to watch to forget about whatever problem they've had that day.
